Michigan running back Fitzgerald Toussaint has been ordered to attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, pay fines and undergo random drug and alcohol tests.
The junior was sentenced Tuesday by Saline District Judge Kirk Tabbey in a drunken driving case stemming from a July arrest.
He pleaded guilty in August to operating a vehicle while visibly impaired after facing the more serious charge of operating while intoxicated.
Toussaint has acknowledged he was stopped for running a red light after drinking brandy. Police said he had a blood alcohol level of 0.12 percent, above the state limit of 0.08.
He must attend 10 AA meetings, pay $1,488 in fines and costs, and undergo random drug and alcohol tests for 90 days.
Toussaint ran for more than 1,000 yards and nine touchdowns last season.

Michigan senior safety Jordan Kovacs talks the media as the Wolverines prepare for Nebraska this Saturday. The defensive captain discusses the secondary play versus Michigan State, the secondary focus on not giving up big plays, preparing for QB Taylor Martinez and the rest of the Nebraska offensive skill players, digesting pre snap plays, and more.***
At this point, the 2012 Big Ten football season is shaping up to be what many thought it would be. Wisconsin will, barring a total meltdown, be the Leaders division representative in the Big Ten championship game, and Michigan is in control of their own destiny in the Legends division. With their 12-10 win over Michigan State last Saturday, the Wolverines are the only team in the...

I have a confession. I wasn’t perched high atop Michigan Stadium, looking down on Michigan’s thrilling win on Saturday from the press box. I wasn’t even in Ann Arbor. Nor was I watching the game from the comforts of my own couch. Instead, I was viewing it on a 4.8 inch HD Super AMOLED screen in section 16, row 34, seat 22 of Notre Dame Stadium.

It’s strange, as I was settling in to watch college football this weekend, I found myself wondering: “Hey, you know who are two people that we haven’t heard from in a while? Brian McFayden and Verne Troyer.” The former, of course, rose to mild prominence as a VJ on MTV’s Total Request Live in the early 2000s, before the music network completely phased out music, and then...
Continuing on with our returning player previews, today we take a look at starting center Jordan Morgan.

Last week, I said that Michigan's Phil Di Giuseppe had the best personal performance out of the Hurricanes NCAA prospect pool but Mark Alt's Minnesota Golden Gophers had the best team performance. It's now a week later and Di Giuseppe now holds both titles as he picked up a pair of assists in the Wolverines 6-3 over Bentley University while Alt was held without a point...
Dwayne Bacon is one of the more versatile prospects in the class of 2015. He has a complete arsenal of skills: he can slash, he can dish and his handle is impressive. He’s also 6-foot-6.
That’s a big reason why the Lakeland, Florida native is regarded as a top-50 player early in his recruitment.
In a recent interview with UM Hoops, Bacon said that, despite his ability at the...
